It’s pumpkin season, ya’ll! Even before the leaves start to change color and the air turns crisp, pumpkins start popping up everywhere! If you love pumpkins and have been looking for a simple and inexpensive pumpkin craft, then I’ve got a treat for you. In this post I will show you how to make some really cute and customizable fall pumpkins. Though this isn’t my original craft idea, I wanted to share it with you because what I love about these pumpkins is how adorable they are and how easy they are to make.
1. Choose the stick(s) you want to use and set them aside.
2. Cut the fabric into 20” squares. This is the length I determined was best for getting the fabric to properly tuck inside the mega-sized toilet paper rolls – 18” is manageable, but the closer you can get to 20”, the better. I was able to get 2 squares out of each ½ yard.
3. Unroll approximately ¼ – ⅓ of the toilet paper off the roll – try not to tear it. Then re-roll it back around the roll to give it a nice, plump pumpkin shape.
4. Flip your fabric over so the wrong side is facing up, and set the toilet paper in the middle.
5. Tuck each corner of the fabric into the center of the roll making sure all the edges are neatly tucked.
6. Cut some ribbon long enough to wrap around the stick(s) and tie them into a bundle.
7. Insert the stick(s) into the top of the pumpkin.
That’s it! This is such a simple craft that adds individuality and fall beauty to your home. It really allows you to show off your creativity, and what’s even better is that you probably already have most of the supplies on-hand.

As an added bonus, I have created a fall printable you can print on cardstock and frame. Click below to download it. The file is sized as an 8.5 x 11. If you’re using and 8×10 frame, you will need to trim the edges, or if you’re able, choose the option to “fit to page” and select an 8×10 size option when printing.
